Yin Chen Hao Pian (Wan)
An All Natural Chinese Herbal Supplement
Yin Chen Hao Wan (Yin Chen Hao Tang, Yin Chen Hao Pian, Jaundiclear™, 茵陈蒿片) is an ancient Chinese herbal medicine often used by Chinese doctors for jaundice in newborn babies and hepatitis. This formula is commonly modified into Yin Zhi Huang. In 2004, a research from Baylor College of Medicine confirmed that the herbal remedy can accelerate the clearance of bilirubin (jaundice) and revealed the molecular pathway that links the formula to jaundice treatment.

    What does it do?
    Yin Chen Hao Tang was originally invented about 2000 years ago with a composition of 3 herbs: Artemisia capillaris (Yin Chen, Yin Chin), Gardenia jasminoides Ellis (Zhi Zi), Rheum officinale Baill (Da Huang). Artemisiae is the major herb in the formula that helps clear the jaundice. It also clears heat and dampness. Gardeniae and Rheum act to enhance the function of Artemisiae.

    In the past 40 years, There have been some modifications of the original Yin Chen Hao Tang recipe. Often times more herbs are added to the formula to reflect our current understanding on herbology and supposedly to enhance the action. The recipe we have here (see below) contains 10 herbs and carries the original name of Yin Chen Hao. The recipe used in the breakthrough study contains one extra herb, Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi (Huang Qin), and is named as Yin Zhi Huang.1

    What does the study find?

    Jaundice is the yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes resulted from the accumulation of bile pigment bilirubin. In the new study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation in 20041, the scientists led by Dr. David Moore were first able to confirm what scientists in China have long reported, that is, Yin Zhi Huang can significantly enhance the clearance of bilirubin from the serum and the liver in the animal model. Then, they were able to track down the protein in the body that mediates this effect of Yin Zhi Huang. The protein is a liver receptor called CAR (Constitutive androstane receptor), which is a key regulator of the bilirubin clearance pathway. When CAR is missing in the body, then Yin Zhi Huang can no longer clear bilirubin. Interestingly, Artemisiae by itself can increase the bilirubin clearance albeit at lower efficacy.

    Surprisingly, the scientists were able to further narrow down a single molecule in Artemisiae that activates CAR which causes subsequent activation of proteins in the the bilirubin clearance pathway.

    The study on Yin Zhi Huang is wonderful and nicely illustrated both the wisdom a Traditional Chinse medicine could be and how powerful the modern biomedical research can be in uncovering the mystery surrounding traditional Chinese medicines.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years and recently switched over to the Hairvive brand for its higher potency. I've not seen either effect my sparsely graying hairs, thus the main reason why I bought it, but it’s worked well in other ways. The two most noticeable changes; it strengthened my nails, regulates bowel movements and it may help with keeping my youthful looks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for my husband My husband have taken one bottle of Hairvive so far. His hair becomes darker. It seems works very well on his type who needs nurture Yin. I took two bottles of Hairvive, but it works slow on me. I think I need traditional type of QI BAO MEI RAN Wan, which can nurture both Yin and Yang at the same time. I suggest all of your medicine can be classified according to 《中医体质分类判定标准及中医体质分类与判定自测表》. Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I started taking this for my hair which after 3 weeks stopped falling out. I dont know if this is what made it stop BUT my years of back aches which my Acu doc told me are due to yin deficiency are also almost gone after 3 weeks. This formula is amazing.
